Dark garnet color. Medicinal aromas and flavors of medicinal herbs, blueberries with cocoa, aloe lotion, and pine sap with a satiny, bright, dryish medium-to-full body and a polished, interesting, medium-long finish that shows touches of marinated beets, dried eucalyptus, and spiced nuts with chewy, crunchy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A very interesting herbal GSM with great table appeal; serve with spicy Mediterranean dishes.

A GSM Red Blend is composed of the Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre (hence the G, S, and M) grapes that define the style of Cotes du Rhone wine.
